General

The E-Tram (Model BT-280) is designed to move personnel in an industrial or commercial application.  When equipped with 9 or 12 passenger trailers, the BT-280 can carry over 30 people in a single trip.

Equipped with 36 volt or 48 volt drive train, E-Tram can travel at speeds of 15 mph, while providing a range of 24 miles in a single charge.

Low step height and increased visibility while traveling at low speeds in congested areas make BT-280 an ideal solution for your personnel moving applications.  Low noise and zero pollution accompanied with low operating and maintenance cost makes BT-280 the most cost effective solution when compared to its gasoline alternatives.

BT-280, equipped with a roll out battery box, can provide extended range for your application. Ideal for use in public venues, BT-280 is one of the safest and most economical ways to transport your customers or employees.
